[Book Quote Tuesday] What It Means To Be Alone And To Love

"All About Love" by bell hooks.

Myra here.

It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.

And because it is February, the month of love, we will be sharing love quotes every Tuesday.

I have not read bell hooks’ All About Love (Amazon | Book Depository) yet – but she is on to something right here. One needs to have a certain quiet to share with another, more than words and one’s physical company. There has to be wholeness found within one’s self before it can be rightly shared with another.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
